My Beginner’s Telescope

The recent eclipse reignited my interest in stargazing. After looking through a number of online recommendations, I settled on the AWB One Sky.

The 5-inch f/5 reflector is a nice balance between features and price for a beginner. The telescope even collapses down into a very portable package for bringing to the local dark part for viewing the stars.

I particularly like that half of the $199 price goes to funding Astronomers Without Borders worldwide education programs.
